The final chapter follows the homecoming of Elliot to his estranged family. As his father dies, Elliot meets and falls in love with a woman who sees past his tough-guy exterior. Written by someone

Wonderful Film
30 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I went to see this film because of Gale Harold, I think this is his best film to date, the stories were wonderful, funny, complex and meaningful, and there was a nice flow to the movie. Even though this was made by Showtime, it didn't have that made-for-TV feel at all. I hope this film will get a wider distribution, Sarasota seemed like a weird place for it to have its World premier and I hope that they will be traveling with the film. It really it very well done and I cannot recommend it enough. This film deserves to be seen, oh yeah and it has a great cast too! I recognized probably about 90% of the cast. . If you're a Gale fan you really need to make an effort to see this film, and even if your not, you should go and see this film anyway!
